  • Shantal (an adult female Siberian Tiger) is one of the kindest animals you'll ever meet - as if you couldn't already see 
			it in her eyes.
  • In May of 2010, we moved our 4 cubs into their new (80 x 90 ft.) enclosure.  They loved to play and hide in the grass.  
			With your help we can get the rest of our animals into LARGE enclosures.
  • Meet Dakota, our friendly and outgoing Interior Alaskan Wolf, one of the largest subspecies of Gray Wolf in North America.
  • Like almost any tiger, those at JNK's love water and LOVE to be hosed down, especially during the hot summer months.
  • In case you've never taken a close-up look at a tiger's feet.  Their large and broad pads are one of the attributes 
			that make them such stealthy hunters... not to mention their huge claws!

JNK's Call of the Wild Sanctuary is an exotic animal rescue center located in Chautauqua County (just outside of Buffalo), in Western New York. JNK's is dedicated to providing homes for injured, abused, neglected and unwanted exotic animals. Many were formerly kept as pets, or otherwise used for profitability in states where it is actually legal to do so -- that is, until the animals grew and began to exhibit their natural instincts and thus could no longer be cared for.

It is our goal to educate the public concerning animal care, the plight of endangered species and especially the fact that exotic animals DO NOT make good pets. We do this through exhibiting our animals at schools, special community events, and holding on-site educational tours.

Since its inception our facility has housed many species including big cats: African and Asian Lions, Siberian (Amur) and Bengal Tigers, African Leopards; as well as North American Black Bears; Timber and Alaskan Interior Wolves; Silver and Northern Red Foxes. We currently provide a home for 12 tigers, 2 lions, 3 bears, 3 wolves, 3 fox, as well as non-exotics such as dogs, cats, and horses.

JNK's is open to the public by appointment throughout the year (hours vary by season); traveling educational exhibits are conducted primarily in the late spring through early fall months. Please contact us to schedule a tour or book an event, or sign-up now to become a JNK's volunteer.

Please help us in our quest to save these wonderful animals.
